I'm very new to this camera (the D3100), and taking real photos in general. I'm reading a guide to help me along, and I'm stuck on the author's explanation of how to change the shutter speed and f/stop (equivalent exposures) while in P mode.

He says you should hold down the shutter release button halfway, then use the dial to change the numbers - but when I do this, nothing on the screen changes. Could it be that I have some setting on/off that would prevent me from changing these things?

Thanks for your advice!
